This Halloween costume will SHOCK you
As it turns out, a costume company named Costumeish sought to make hay of the ordeal with its "Parisian Heist Robbery Victim Costume Kit," complete with a fake ring, gag, white robe, black wig, sunglasses, and two-foot rope.
The $69.99 item was pulled following backlash received on social media and on the retailer's website. The company's vice president said this is the first time it has yanked a product from the site, even though Costumeish has sold several other offensive costumes in the past.
It doesn't surprise me that so many people were up in arms over this tasteless effort on the part of Costumeish to capitalize on Kim Kardashian's traumatizing experience.
I can't stand her and will never understand why she and her family get so much media attention. Still, it is wrong and insensitive for the company to make light of a serious situation. Thankfully, she wasn't hurt, but the outcome could have been far worse.
I'm not sure where her bodyguard was when this happened, but I can only imagine the family has stepped up security in the wake of this horrible event.
What's your opinion on the costume? Do you find it to be distasteful?
